Abstract:

The US Navys Unmanned Undersea Vehicle UUV Master Plan April 2000 calls for adopting a more modular design philosophy and the establishment of standards for better integration of future UUV systems. In early 2002, a study team was formed with representatives from 5 Navy laboratories. Existing standards and systems have been examined, as well as soliciting industry input. Six draft standards were generated from this years effort 1 UUV Control Architecture and Software. 2 Propulsion and Hotel Power Bus. 3 Communications Protocols. 4 Data Storage. 5 UUV CPU backbone Architecture. 6 Electrical Connectors. Future efforts may include establishing standards for UUV modules and the development of guidelines for a modular common mission planner. Further industry and academic input is being sought for the further development of these and other standards.
